NTP Requests Information on Assays & Approaches ... for Potential Neurotoxicity

The National Toxicology Program (NTP) requests information on medium- or high-throughput technologies/assay systems, which allow for the batch screening of compounds (e.g., 25-50) in biochemical- or cell-based assays or alternative (non-rodent) animal models, that might be used to prioritize compounds for in vivo neurotoxicity testing.  The deadline for receipt of information is May 1, 2013.

The announcement was published in the Federal Register (Vol. 78, No. 62, pages 19499-19500): Request for Information: The National Toxicology Program Requests Information on Assays and Approaches Useful for Screening Compounds for Potential Neurotoxicity.
